Greetings from our beloved principal:
"Seniors of 1953, during the past twelve years your interests have been my interests. I
have been interested in your efforts. I know you have ambition and enthusiasm, but my message
to you is to strive to always have a strength of purpose and character enough to push on to the
successful completion of your goal in life. It will be a supreme delight to you in seeing "a job
"Strive to keep the spirit of helpfulness and earnest endeavor that characterizes our school;
dare to dream of the future and strike boldly to make those dreams come true. Keep your principles
high and clean, for as in all life 'principle is the principal thing'."
"Wonderful oppormnities are yours. While my generation has seen great changes, your
generation will see miraculous changes in mankind. Explore these new frontiers boldly and
courageously; for this is your opportunity, vour hope, and your joy."
In keeping with the original name of our town, we have chosen KING'S CABIN
as the title of our 1953 yearbook.
We are especially indebted to Mr. Theodore Newsome for the historical facts and
the-background herewith presented.
Many veterans from the Revolutionary War passed through Stokes County and
many settled here. Among those who settled here was a man by the name of Charles
King. He built a little log cabin near where the home of A. S. Francis now stands.
It was for this man that the little town was called King.
With the coming of a railroad through King in 1887, the town began to grow.
Mark Chopplin opened the first store in King. It stood just north of the railroad crossing
near Mr. Francis's home. The first post office was located in Chopplin's store. This store
was the center of town for many years.
Soon after a railway station was built by the Grabs Brothers and the people of the
community. The post office was moved near the station. About this time we got our
first doctor. Dr. Jacob Knight came to King from Colfax. He lived in a small log
house which stood just across the road from the O. L. Rains home.
Before we got a doctor the town had a school, which was a one-room log cabin
and stood near the home of Mrs. P. W. Gunter. Wince Fulton was the first teacher. In
1904 the school district known as Hardluck and Hustler was consolidated into the King
School district, and a new frame building was erected. In 1909 this two-room building
was jacked up and two rooms were put underneath the old rooms. This was the year
King High School was established with Professor Coggins as principal. F. T. Smith was
the county superintendent. This was the first public high school in Stokes County.
About 1911 a new frame building was erected where the present baseball diamond
is located. There was no auditorium, so for commencement programs, the teachers
marchd the children down to the Old Tabernacle, a large circular building which was
used for all public meetings at that time. Several years later an auditorium and more
rooms were added to the building.
The following were at the head of the school during these periods: 1911-12, Bivens;
1913-15, Hiatt; 1915-17, A. R. Phillips; 1917-18, Britt; 1918-22, T. T. Smith: 1922-24,
H. A. Carroll; 1924-25, G. C. Bush; 1925-27, H. A. Carroll; 1927-32, C. C Carroll;
1932-to present, C. M. Felts.
In 1928 the present modern brick school building was erected. Later came a new
gymnasium, agriculture building, home economics building and a lunch room.
In September 1952 we, the four high school grades, entered our new modern brick
building. We feel it is to the advantage of both grades and high school to have separate
buildings; and the class of '53, deem it a privilege to be the first graduates from the

Fifty-eight boys and girls enjoyed the summer of 1949 and
looked forward to the opening of school in the fall. This opening
marked their entrance into high school and another step in their
The day came and everyone gathered in the auditorium for
the usual routine of opening day. The Freshmen, feeling very
important, awaited their turn to learn who their teachers were.
Many were disappointed to find the girls would have their home
room in the economics building with Mrs. Patterson and the boys
would be with Mr. Fowler in the science room.
When they were settled down they eleaed class officers and
grade parents. Officers in Mrs. Patterson's room were "Diddy"
Caudle, President; Mary Ruth Johnson, Vice-President; Barbara
Southern, Secretary, and Grace Westmoreland, Treasurer.
After the gay days of the Freshmen year they again enjoyed
the summer months and returned in the fall of 1950 for their
second year of high school.
There were fifty-two students this year and the home room
teachers were Mrs. Patterson and Mrs. Duncan. Officers eleaed
in Mrs. Patterson's room were Mary Smith, President; Mary
Ruth Johnson, Vice-President; Diddy Caudle, Secretary and
Treasurer; and June Sisk, Reporter. In Mrs. Duncan's room they
were Charles Westmoreland, President; Naomi Wall, Vice-
President; Doris Barr, Secretary; Marvin Gentry, Treasurer; and
Wilma Covington, Reporter.
The two Sophomore classes were represented in the Student
Council by Doris Edwards, Jack Booze, Barbara Southern, and
Mr. O. W. Sisk and Mrs. W. E. Westmoreland were grade-
parents for Mrs. Patterson's class. This class enjoyed a nice trip
to Raleigh, visiting the capitol, governor's mansion, and other
places of interest.
Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Nicholson and Mr. and Mrs. Worth
Gentry were elected gradeparents in Mrs. Duncan's class. They
gave the group a very merry party at Christmas time.
Doris Barr, recording secretary in the Smdent Council meet-
ings and June Sisk, treasurer, enjoyed a trip to Hendersonville
for a Northwestern Smdent Council Conference during their
May Day was a gay occasion for the high school. The Sopho-
mores were represented in the May Court by Doris Barr and
Mary Smith, and other Sophomore girls participated in the pro-
gram and Maypole dance.
Forty-two of these boys and girls passed from the Sophomore
year int otheir Junior year. The boys and girls will always carry
many fond memories of those Junior Days.
Mrs. Stevens was the Junior home room teacher and the
Junior's home room was the library. Officers of this year were
Mary Smith, President; Charles Westmoreland, Vice-President;
Barbara Southern, Recording Secretary; Diddy Caudle, Corre-
sponding Secretary; Marvin Gentry, Treasurer; June Sisk, Reporter.
Gradeparents elected were Mr. and Mrs. O. W. Sisk and Mr. and
Mrs. Worth Gentry. They gave the Juniors a happy New Year's
Eve paty and presented the Junior Class with two nice picmres,
which now hang in the library of the new high school building.
Barbara Southern and "Diddy" Caudle won first place for theit
fine playing in the talent show held in November. Mary Smith
and Mildred Nance won first place for their singing. Several of
the Junior girls prepared boxes to be sold for the benefit of the
The Juniors worked zealously in preparing the gymnasium for
the annual Halloween Carnival. Mary Ruth Johnson, a Junior
class member, was crowned harvest queen. Everyone enjoyed the
carnival and the Juniors were quite proud of their work.
Both the Juniors and Seniors looked forward to the Junior-
Senior Banquet which was held at the Robert E. Lee Hotel on
May 9, 1952. Everyone appeared looking their best and thoroughly
enjoyed the fine food and entertainment provided.
At class night, during commencement, the Juniors carried
a chain made of field daisies. On the night of the baccalaureate
sermon many Juniors sang with the Glee Club. Marshals for
commencement were Barbara Southern, chief; Geraldine Lankford,
Doris Barr, "Diddy" Caudle, and Naomi Wall.
The new high school building was completed and the boys and
girls who had begun their high school days in 1949 now entered
the new new building to complete their high school days. Mrs.
J. Colvin Brown is our home room teacher, 1953 and '54.
The following Senior officers were elected: Mary Smith, Presi-
dent; Doris Barr, Vice-President; Barara Southern, Recording Sec-
retary; "Diddy" Caudle, Corersponding Secretary; Jack Booze,
Treasurer; and Doris Edwards, Reporter. Marvin Gentry and
Doris Barr represents the Senior Class at the Smdent Council
The Senior Class went to Raleigh to see Sonja Henie's Ice
Revue. They were thrilled with the show and had a very joyous
What can be more exciting than the Senior Play? The Seniors
of 1952-53 presented He Couldn't Take It, a three act comedy,
on December 4, 1952. It was a great success. Mrs. Brown was
The Seniors were given two nice parties at Halloween and
Christmas by their gradeparents, Mr. and Mrs. T. W. McGee and
Mr. and Mrs. Debs Holder.
On February 11, 1953 the Senior Class enjoyed a trip to Elon
College. Mr. Lindler went with the Seniors on this trip. They
enjoyed the basketball game between Elon and High Point.
The Senior girls studying dictation and transcription organized
a business girls society known as the Puellae Negoti Socii. Of-
ficers elected were Barbara Southern, President; Naomi Wall,
Vice-President; June Sisk, Recording Secretary; Margaret Booez,
Corresponding Secretary; Mrs. Newsom was their advisor. These
girls had a nice banquet on February 12, at which each member
invited a graduate to tell of her work as a secretary.
As class historians, may we wish each of our Senior classmates
a very prosperous fumre — and to Mr. Felts and all of our
teachers through the years, may your memories of this class be
pleasant as we make our mark in this wonderful land of America.

Old Maid and Bachelor
BY MARGARET LEE BOOZE
It is December 19, 1959, on the planet Mars. I am secretary
for the Vice-President of the M. G. M. Studios. We are getting
ready to blast off for the planet Earth. We are going to visit
some of my old classmates while on Earth and we shall land in
New York City and shall visit the Metropolitan Opera House while
there. When we return to Mars, we shall make a movie about the
As we entered the station platform from our rocketship, we
were greeted by Mary Smith and her husband. We learned they
were on their way to visit their parents in King, North Carolina.
Mary is now teaching American History at the University of
We learned from Mary that Jessie Merritt is now a successful
hair designer in Boston, Massachusetts. We learned that Jessie
is not married as yet, but she is planning to wed a Vice-President
of the United States Steel Company in April.
As we entered our car on the train, whom should we meet but
Charles Westmoreland. He told us he is now pitching for the
New York Yankees. He won 19 games last season and only lost
one game. We also learned he is married to a famous concert
As we came into Pittsburgh, I saw someone I knew, but I
could not recall who she was. After we left the train, I remem-
bered — Edna Ncwsom. I contacted her and learned she is a
basketball coach for a high school in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
She is planning to marry Bobby Gravitt when he gets out of the
Army. Bobby joined the Army for four years, and he is now
stationed in Fairbanks, Alaska, doing some research work for the
government. He will be home in about three months.
Edna informed us that Annie Belle Priddy is the wife of the
Mayor of Baltimore, Maryland. Annie Belle is her husband's pri-
vate secretary in Baltimore, Maryland.
As we boarded our rocketship for Chicago, we saw Jack Watts,
who was to be our pilot. He told us he enjoyed his flying very

Cincinnati, Ohio, and is married to his childhood sweetheart.

LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT
We, the Senior Class of Nineteen Hundred and Fifty-Three, of King High School, in the
county of Stokes, the State of North Carolina, being of sound mind, and realizing impending
departure from this school, do hereby declare and make this our last will and testament.
To the school we leave the fond hope that it will improve as the years go by and that
other seniors will perform in a more dignified manner than we have.
To the faculty; To Mr. Felts: A pair of roller skates and a paved walk to be used on his
daily trips to the high school building. To Mrs. Brown: A warmer room and, too, a bouquet of
red roses for the unrequited love and friendship bestowed upon us during our school days.

A Ph.D. degree in 'Jack of All Trades," for anything we ask her to do — she can do. To Mr.
Neal: Twins — each weighing 176 pounds and the ability to shoot with either hand — two more
Bobby Joe's would clinch all championships. To Mrs. Shore: A "bulldozer" to push the Home
Economics building a little closer to the new high school for it is inconvenient to have to go
to the post office to get announcements of faculty meetings. To Mr. Lindler: A key to his
desk drawer so the "most competent" pupils will not be able to sneak a copy of the test to
pass around. To Mr. Underwood: A NEW convertible and a New parking lot at the NEW
building. To Mr. Randal: A third year agricultural class that prefers working to sleeping.
To Mrs. Gentry: A Glee Club that can get to class on time. To Mr. Turtle: Some more green

THE STUDENT COUNCIL
"You are invited to a Get Acquainted Tea", was the first social event of the
school year. The student council officers graciously presided as host to the faculty,
P.-T. A. officers, and the grammar grade student council officers on this occasion
in the new high school library.
At the first meeting, Mrs. Newell Newsom was elected adviser for the third
consecutive year, and committee chairmen were appointed along with a teacher
adviser for each committee.
The student council arranged all assembly programs for this school year. High-
lights — with the spotlight on vocations — have been programs from the following
professions: Medical doctors, secretaries, florists, drama, newspaper reporting, law,
dentistry, nursing, ministry, armed service, teaching, agriculture, salesmen, and
several others. We thinlt these programs have been of great help to the pupils
in our school.
The "Talent Show" in November was quite successful; the participants from
other schools in our County helped to make it a real "treat".
"A "sale of Reader's Digest" subscriptions was also sponsored in November,
from which we received a nice profit.
"Open House" was held in November during American Education Week.
Refreshments were served to parents and visitors in the Home Ec. building.
The "Boy and Girl of the Month" selection was made during the year by the
student council — to the present date these boys and girls have received that honor:
Richard Holder, Carolyn Hendrlx, William Covington, Doris Jane Barr, Robert
Robertson, Geraldine Lankford, Bobbie Joe Harris, and Edna Newsom.
Because of lack of interest in his duties, J. Lee Johnson was replaced by Lind-
say Robertson as a ninth grade representative early in the year.
We sold "school color basketball pins" for our first ball game, declaring that
day as "Color Day." Every pupil and teacher wore something "red and black"
for the occasion.
Our council supplied the fruit that was served at basketball games by our
At Christmas, with all high school rooms participating, we remembered
several families with huge boxes of "Christmas cheer."
Again this year, the council members showered the basketball teams with
towels to be used after games. The response for these towels was very gratifying.
Our council has been responsible for the attractively-kept bulletin board in
the gym and, too, for all the colorful decorations used for each game.
June Sisk and Anne Phillips are to be complimented for their conscientious
effort in writing "King Kracks" for our county papers.
The student council was quite honored this year at Christmas time for the
opportunity of being host to the Stokes County Student Council at a Christmas
banquet, served by the King American Legion Auxiliary.
Elsie Lankford is to be commended for her efforts in attempting to keep
the halls quiet.
We appointed a grounds committee to work with the P.-T. A. committee for
the improvement of our grounds surrounding our new building.
The high school social, "A Valentine Party," was sponsored by the student
council social committee in February at Vade Mecum.
The student council has been responsible for the many and attractive bulletin
boards at the entrance of the high school buUding.
A worn American Flag wa.s burned in a very impressive ceremony sponsored
by our council in February.
At this writing the council president, William Covington, is being bombarded
with questions about whether or not we will have Homecoming Day, May Day,
and a high school outdoor outlns.

TRIBUTE TO KING HIGH SCHOOL
BY MILVIN SOUTHERN BENNETT
Ours is the best high school in the land.
Divided we'd fall; but united we stand.
We'll be loyal to the end.
On that, King High, you can depend.
Oh, dear old King High, we love you; we always will.
When we've grown old, we'll think of you still.
While our children live again.
The days that we once spent here.
We have a team that really is great.
One that is free from hard feelings and hate.
When our team walks on the floor.
You can hear the fans all roar,
"Rah! Rah! Rah! Come on. King High,
We know you can win; because you have won again and again.
If you lose, a smile you'll wear,
'Cause you know the game was fair."
- Our Eagle stands so sure and so free;
He is a symbol of our loyalty.
Never wil we lose the trust,
That you. King High, have placed in us.
And then, when we have left and gone on our way.
We will forever hope and we'll pray,
Though we're leaving, we'll ne'er forget.
The lessons that we learned here.

Shelton, Kay Long. Mrs. Newsom is cheerleader sponsor.

"RED and BLACK"
"Don't let the stars get in your eyes," has been the refrain floating over the campus for
the past few weeks, the reason being, the once defeated King High School girls' basketball team.
This high-stepping, sharp-shooting, defensively clad basketball team began picking up steam
last October at the first practice. We were happy to learn that Mr. Neal would be the girls'
coach this year. Those returning from Mrs. Voss's excellent team of last year were Edna Newsom,
Melva Boyles, Margaret Booze, Doris Edwards, Mary Ruth Johnson, Grace W. Johnson, Doris
Jane Barr, Mary E. Smith, Nancy Boyles, and Faye Sizemore. Kay Carroll, Ann Spainhour, Mary
Ruht Spainhour, and Violet Stewart were the new ones on the team.
This group of girls after patient coaching from Mr. Neal and determination on their part
soon developed into what some people say is the best King team since 1938. The King sextet
has won the Stokes County title for the past six years, and because of their fine record up to
the present time, they are again favored to cop the Stokes County Crown. The only loss of the
season was to a strong Pilot Mountain team, whom they later defeated 29-14.
Captaining the team are Edna Newsom, a powerful guard, and Mary Ruth Johnson, who
is a star at forward or guard. Newsom, along with Melva Boyles and Margaret Booze, make
up one of the finest defensive units in the state. Along with the reserve guards, they held
Walkertown, a high scoring team, without a field goal the entire game. King winning 28-10.
Johnson teams with Mary Edith Smith and Nancy Jo Boyles to give the team a high geared
offense. Boyles is one of the finest all-round forwards in the Northwest. Smith will probably
develop into one of the most powerful forwards that King has ever had. Grace Johnson is to be
congramlated for being able to step right into Mary Ruth Johnson's position and carry on for
King High. Doris Jane Barr's ability to pass the ball to the place it's needed has meant victory
in many games, and Doris Edwards along with the other capable reserves has made our team
the best in Stokes County.
Much of the credit for the success of the team must go to Mr. Neal, one of the best coaches
in the Northwest. Mr. Felts, who was always ready with suggestions and who substituted for
Mr. Neal while he was sick, also had a part in the building of the team. Mrs. Newsom, lady adviser,
has helped out with her encouragement and constructive criticism. The managers, Jocie Lewis
and Oleita Barnes, have kept the team "chewing" and have been very co-operative in keeping
the dressing rooms clean.
"Shoot 'em high; shoot 'em low! Come on girls, let's go! We want the Stokes County Crown
— Seven in a row." b

King Hi boys will shine tonight
King Hi will shine — "
And that is exactly what the King High boys have done in the twenty games played to date.
Our Eagles have "burned up the hardwood" in Northwest North Carolina this year with a
seventy-point average per game.
Coach Odell Neal's high-scoring, "high-soaring" Eagles racked up 119 points in one victory.
Pacing the attak this year has been high-scoring Bobby Joe Harris, and captain, Richard "Wimp"
Holder, with Robert Robertson, the long shot artist of the team, adding points when most needed.
Dance Nance along with Wimp Holder has maintained a stronghold under all opponents'
baskets, and dependable Wesley Hunsucker, "the four point man," has aided the undefeated
"Oh, yes. Coach Odell Neal's done it again, " says Mr. and Mrs. Basketball Fan of the
Northwest, and the patrons and pupils of King Hi are really quite proud of the coach of the
'Red and Black" teams.
Rounding out the roster for the Eagles has been Marvin Gentry, senior; sophomore Joe
Bolejack, Don Robertson, and James Lawson; and freshmen Don Boyles, Richard Westmoreland
have been favored this year to take over when the "big Eagles" needed a rest.
Carrying towels, rubbing "Charley Horses," and holding jackets has kept managers
' Smitty" Smith and "Rose" Baker quite busy — and they've done a good job, too!
Guiding the Eagles during Mr. Neal's illness was Mr. Collins, our eighth grade teacher,
who performed in the true "Stokes County Collins' Manner."
C-o-me-e o-n EAGLES! We want the Stokes County Championship to make it six in a row,
and if you don't mind, just add the State Race Crown to your accomplishments. Yea! TEAM.

Way back in 1941
We entered grade school one by one.
"What's your name?" asked Miss New
"Here are some toys and little books, too."
Miss Hutchens stopped our cries and frowns.
And sent us up to Garner, Gentry and Brown.
Oh, yes, Mrs. Jones taught us to sing.
And Miss Sprinkle took us for walks in the spring.
Mrs. Kiser, Mrs. Gentry and Mrs. Lawson taught us geogra-phy.
Mrs. Slate and Mrs Moore tried the same with his-to-ry
In the Sixth grade Mrs Lawson gave us candy,
And Mrs. Lewis told us stories — a few were quite dandy.
Mrs. Kiser taught some the right way to write,
Miss Helsabeck gave fractions that kept us up nights.
In the Eighth grade Mrs. Duncan took us to Wachovia Museum.
While Mr. Garner fired our stove underneath the gym.
Yes, we Seniors of '53 are bidding you 'Goodbye."
We shall never forget you — we could not break that tie.
